Note: I am participating in a 30-day blog challenge as part of Reflective Teacher Month at Teach Thought. I am looking forward to learning more about myself, my pedagogy and my colleagues.
Day 4 Prompt: What do you love the most about teaching?
My favorite part of teaching is when you get to that moment where everything clicks. Maybe just one student suddenly grasps a concept that he or she has been struggling with. Or perhaps the entire class suddenly engages and gets excited about a discussion, or a concept.
I live for those moments.
I am a secondary English Language Arts teacher, a University of Oklahoma student working on my Master’s of Education in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum with an concentration in English Education, and a NBPTS candidate. I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students’ voices and choices.
